Faton's story

The borrower, Faton, comes from the Ashkali community. The Ashkali community is very poor and has a low economic status overall. It is often difficult for the members of this area to improve their status, and often in addition to their work, they need the assistance of loans. Most of the people in this community make a living by cutting firewood to sell for heating. Faton is very famous and unique because he is the only one in his area that fixes the machines for cutting wood. This makes him invaluable to the community and in much demand. Faton has a workshop in his house and he is very satisfied with his work and that he is able to support his family though this means. For the first time he is requesting a loan in order to purchase some new tools to repair his machine. He hopes that this loan will help him to be able to better serve his clients and reach his goal to expand his business, allowing him to eventually even sell the wood-cutting machines. He is very grateful for the opportunity.
